Champagne Henriot | Champagne, France
A racy, dense wine but it's refined and silky with wonderful texture and length. Full-bodied and very tight with minerals and sliced apples. Couilly, Avize, Oger and Le Mesnil-sur-Oger. Mostly from their vintages. It's aged five years on the lees. It starts off slowly and goes very, very long. Such intense brioche, dough and tropical fruit. Mutli-layered with wonderful phenolic layers. Bottled in 2009 and disgorged end of last year. The process began 1990 and each year they add a little bit of the new vintage in the solera in stainless. Only in 1,000 magnums.
